The global transmission of COVID-19 has likely flipped your typical calendar into a jumble.
When things feel uncertain you can feel good in knowing your house is your safe area. You’re possibly spending more time there today. As a result, your indoor air quality is now more important than ever.
Were you aware we can install indoor air quality products in your residence that offer hospital-grade filtration? These options can eliminate bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Up-to-date residences are securely sealed, which is good for energy efficiency. But it also means your inside air could be worse than the air outside. In reality, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This might be problematic since we spend about 90% of our time inside.
There are many factors that can lead to poor indoor air quality, such as cleaning products and air fresheners. These may result in headaches and irritate allergies and asthma.
There’s a combination of actions you can take to enhance your air quality. Some include improved air filters, an air purification system or an ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light.
Unsure which option is best for your residence? Our knowledgeable professionals can perform an indoor air quality audit. Based upon the results, we can then suggest the most fitting option for your family’s distinctive needs.

When looking at air filters, it’s important to consider the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This gauges how effectively it filters contaminants.
One of the most ordinary and least expensive filters, flat fiberglass filters, are rated between 1 and 4 on the MERV register. Pleated filters are a little bit better, graded between 8 and 12.
We suggest getting no less than MERV 13, such as the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the most ideal effect. This filter provides fresher air while reducing energy needs.
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are deemed the benchmark in air filtration, as they’re frequently in use in hospitals. They’re effective at trapping 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, including pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Lennox provides some of the best air purification equipment you can buy. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems offer hospital-grade filtration while taking care of all types of indoor air contaminants.
These powerful units can take care of:
- 99.9% of allergens, such as pollen, dust and pet dander.
- 95% of bacteria-sized particles, such as ones that cause strep throat.
- 50% of VOCs and odors within 24 hours.
UV Germicidal Lights
A UV germicidal light is placed inside your heating and cooling unit. Its strong rays wipe out bacteria and mold within seconds.
If your family struggles with allergies or asthma, this equipment could give relief. Especially if you live in an extremely hot area where bacteria and mold grow quickly.
This light also provides an added advantage for your HVAC equipment. It could help it run for a greater period of time and run more efficiently, because it keeps the internal parts clean.
Our air quality engineers suggest installing one of these lights with an improved filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for optimal outcome. This filter offers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration combined with carbon-coated fibers to catch particles in your residence’s air. It fulfills this without decreasing your heating and cooling unit’s airflow.
Acquiring balanced humidity in your home could help keep your household in good health during the winter. It can aid sore throats, itchy skin and peeling lips, in addition to other cold weather bothers.
If you aren’t sure of what your house’s humidity level is, we’ll measure it during your indoor air quality audit. While the range fluctuates based on outdoor temperatures, HVAC experts generally advise keeping it between 40–60 percent.
You can reach this optimum range with a whole-home humidifier. This unit generally accompanies your furnace or air handler to give the right level of humidity across your home. Some units, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, contain an included fan to spread humidity during the time your HVAC system isn’t on.

*Based on in-duct testing that shows Healthy Climate® filters reduce airflow restriction. Greater restriction of airflow creates a greater load on a unit’s fan motor, increasing energy consumption.
